As far as I know only the last two currently have the Simpsons House, but A-Tembo does for example have the Parisian Restaurant for

That's a cute little set.  Now they just need to release a "moving back into my parent's house" set to go with it.  It could be a modular complete with basement apartment, video game system, piles of dirty laundry, empty take-out containers, and circled help-wanted ads newspaper brick.
